Join the Audubon Society of Central Arkansas for its monthly meeting, tonight at 7 p.m. at Fletcher Library in Little Rock. Kelly Mulhollan and Donna Stjerna will discuss The Ozarks Project and Toucan Jam. Kelly and Donna will share folk stories collected from the people of the Ozarks. They may even share a song or two inspired by these tales. In addition to being skilled musicians, they are excellent educators and will describe the ways they teach children about exotic cultures and nature through their Toucan Jam program.
Both Kelly and Donna are accomplished songwriters and play a plethora of acoustic instruments under the moniker Still on the Hill. The group’s repertoire is primarily their own original, roots-based compositions, a genre hybrid they term “folkgrass.” The twosome has created several very popular children’s shows and educational workshops which they perform under the name Toucan Jam. They also teach students about birds at the Arkansas Audubon Society Halberg Ecology Camp.
